  1. Version 2.5 Graphics Question

    Minty green tree colors can be caused my old shaders if you did an DCS update and not a clean/new install. Just delete the ...Users/xxx/Saved Games\DCS\fxo and ...Users/xxx/Saved Games\DCS\metashaders folders. The game will rebuild those shader folders for each Theater. So, then fly a quick mission in each theater and wait for it to load.. and wait... and wait.. Once they are built it will load faster. If you are getting 100-150 fps you can turn your graphic settings up much higher. Try to match your refresh rate of your monitor. My monitors are 60mhz.. So, I shoot for 60fps on average, and turn my graphics up until the fps are hitting around that range. Cheers!
  2. Hi Mate. I have just joined. How do I get the teamspeak password?

    Many thanks.

      Hello Sgt Gibson,

      I don't fly very much with the guys anymore, but here is the TS info:

  3. Finally got mine working. Had to unplug my Thrustmaster T300rs Racing Wheel. Now, can I just copy my saved clod settings over? Or is it not compatible? Sent from my Moto Z Play using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks, yes I know. I have posted with their devs. This morning they are saying it is a problem with Logitech controllers or Wheels. I'm in no hurry. I think they will get it fixed. Cherrio!
  5. Crash, Crash, Crash. Not Crash, I mean Blitz. So far that's all it's good for. But it's great for showing that new Logo before the crash. Event Log says it's the ntdll.dll causing the crash. Devs say it's a 32bit overlay probably. Others say they have fixed it by unplugging their controllers the first time they run it. None worked for me. Oh well..
  6. Perfect Mode Question

    I disagree. Flying past something at 700mph is smoother IMO. Most of the time you won't notice it, I agree. But there are times when it looks smoother. I'm not sure if it's because the eye has more frames to choose from as the brain processes it or what. But I have seen the difference even in hdtv sets where the are trying to show off their solutions. It's always in a scene where the background is moving fast. Just my opinion.
  7. We need to talk...

    Can give me a link to these?
  8. Yes, Prop Pitch is called 'Propeller RPM control'.
  9. I had not flown BoX with anyone until yesterday with Jack and AP. I found out that Jack can host with no problems on his local pc. Gustang has made many missions and knows the editor pretty well. And you can see your aircraft on the o map by pressing the i key. It shows up as a black aircraft icon. We just flew one mission, but we started on the runway with engines running. Just had to know how to set 2-3 things before takeoff. One of the things that had confused me is that I didn't know that you can have duplicate hotas assignments in your settings. I thought they would conflict. You can setup an axis for something in one aircraft and the same axis for something else in another aircraft. I had not assigned an axis to the La5's cowl flaps because I had used all of my axis for other planes. But Jack explained that was not a problem. I can just assign it again.
  10. We need to talk...

    Yea, but probably too late for me. I go to bed around 9:30 - 10. Do you guys start earlier? No weekends?
  11. We need to talk...

    When do you guys fly Jack? Any weekends?
  12. We need to talk...

    Not me. I bought an Oculus Rift 3 months ago and tested DCS, IL2 BoX, Elite Dangerous, and other games. I don't like VR for DCS. The game is too complicated to play without seeing my keyboard, hotas, and second monitor. BoX and ED are playable with it and it looks ok. But the graphics quality is reduced by at least half for me. I have triple screens and graphics quality looks great on them. VR is still in it's infancy. It will be several years I think before I see it mainstream. The most impressive tech I have see is they use eye tracking to only process the best graphics at the point where you are looking. That looks very realistic and is far less demanding. They were getting very high fps and what the user saw was much more detailed. But I digress. I guess I have just spent so much to get very high graphics to lose so much of it in VR. I consider VR a fun toy at this point.
  13. Perfect Mode Question

    Yes with vsync on you get no tearing. I'm just saying that with it on you get 60 fps only if your card is producing 60 or more fps. When the card produces 59 fps(or less) vsync only gives you 30 fps. I saw a great video about how the buffers work last week.. Not sure if this is it, but this explains it well also..
